What video card do you have? I'm having the same problem with my system. I have a 17" HP DTR with go5600 gpu. The exhast port get's about 10 times hotter playing D3 than any other game. It shut's down w/ out warning every 5 minutes; however if I prop it up and increase the airflow then it goes about an hour. You may need to increase the airflow around your video card. Try taking the side off your desktop and blowing a fan in there. If that stops the problem; you know it's the card.

I have ran into the same, or similar trouble. The game ran beautifully all last night, right until 1:30 am, when it crashed to windows mid game, without warning or error message. My graphics card is a 256mb BFG GeForce 5500 oc, it has its own cooling fan, and is only a day old. The game isnt running long enough for the card to get hot. This only started happening when I reached Alpha Labs, and has become a prevalent problem, up until now the game has run like a dream.
